Tech at Night: Are Bitcoiners ready to pay taxes like any other currency users? FTC blames the victim on Cybersecurity.

Tech at Night

I talk about anarchists often in this space, but I mean it. These people are a threat. Here’s one cell making threats and demanding $3 billion from Google in blackmail.

And that’s why it’s so incredibly insane that the US Government keeps playing blame the victim with these guys, as in the Wyndham case. It’s going to be up to the Congress to reel in the FTC on this.

Well this is interesting: the Senate patent bill may include some tort reform. Sounds good to me. The House is looking at other ways to deal with patent trolls, and I’m sure those will be interesting too, such as demanding more transparency and specificity in patent infringement notices.

Gotta love how the left pretends to be seeking facts but pretty strongly rigs its ‘journalism’.

House Republicans want to keep ICANN and the core of the Internet under American stewardship.

I love free markets but given the amount of control the People’s Liberation Army and the Communist Party have on “private business” in China, I don’t like the idea of Lenovo buying more of IBM.

This is amusing: Steve Stockman wants sales taxes paid on Bitcoin purchases. You know, treating it like any other currency.

USAID denies the “Cuban Twitter” story. Now the Congress needs to leave it alone and let the dissidents do their thing.

Gasp, are people starting to realize that, in the words of Ronald Reagan: “Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem” when it comes to broadband Internet competition?

Though even with the competition we have (which is more than they want you to think, all those ‘no choice’ stats fiddle with the numbers to exclude competitors), it’s important that big users of Internet pay for their use, even if they really don’t want to have to pay. By the way, I continue to be proven right that Net Neutrality was always all about not paying for what you use, which is why you’re seeing the Net Neuties expand from last mile to peering deals.

NSA’s opponents failed to get to the Supreme Court. Ha ha.
